Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) recently introduced the Safe
Drivers Act of 2011 (H.R. 2333), which will require the U.S.
Department of Transportation to study the impact of in-vehicle
wireless phone use and recommend legislative activity based on the findings.
Peter Davidson, Verizon Senior Vice President of federal government
relations said, “We applaud Rep. McCarthy for introducing the Safe
Drivers Act of 2011. While mobile devices bring great benefits to
Americans’ lives, they must be used responsibly while driving. We’re
pleased that Congresswoman McCarthy is championing this public safety
measure, and we fully support her efforts to enact the Safe Drivers
Act of 2011.”
